VantageLine Systems - Permanent Roof Safety Lifeline Systems

Operatives regularly need to access roof areas for maintenance – whether it is gutter clearing, plant maintenance, photovoltaic panels (solar panels) or any other important reason – and gaining access safely is a critical consideration.

Fortunately, our fall protection lifeline system is designed for these specific situations; and it is highly adaptable and can be fitted to multiple roof types – from flat membrane roofs and composite panels, to built-up roof systems and tiles roofs.

Key Feature – Our VantageLine system contains a powerful integral shock absorption system that reduces fall-arrest shock loads to incredibly low forces - below 6kN - as opposed to the 10kN alternatives on the market, protecting the roofs and maintaining the warranty.

Industrial Units - This safety lineline system was installed along roof centre of this commercial unit to provide safe access to all areas of the roof.

This lifeline system contains a shock-absorber spring (not all systems do) which protects the roof sheets in the event of an operative falling or when the system is put under excessive tension. 

This means the roof sheets will not need to be replaced or the roof repaired.  Our post can be easily replaced and the baseplate will remain in place.  As a result your roof warranty  will remain in place for the long-term.

What Is A Lifeline System?

To ensure the safety of all personnel working at height on flat or pitched roofs, fall prevention equipment may need to be installed for properties in the UK.

A lifeline system is a fall protection cable-based system which users attach to using a harness and lanyard. They are commonly found in two locations - on building roofs, and to the underside of roofs when working on fall-risk zones (e.g. trucks, tanks and machinery).

An approved cable-based fall arrest system, such as 3M RoofSafe, 8mm lifeline or Uniline system, can be a critical component to making work at height safe, keeping users firmly attached to a system.

Horizontal lifeline systems are not always the most appropriate, and collective protection equipment such as guardrail systems can be more suitable. Each system has it's own benefits, so ensure you take sound advice before any system is installed to your roof.

Contact us now on 01935 474602 to discuss your requirements.

Fall Protection Equipment We Install

If you're looking at safety lifeline system there are numerous types and they all vary in design, functionality and their appropriatenenss, so it's worth finding out from a specialist which system will work best. They include Roofsafe, Uni-8, Uni-8 overhead, Cabloc Pro, Roof Angel, Soter, Keeline and more. If you want to send us your enquiry email safety@stqvantage.co.uk.

If you are looking for a bespoke solution then feel free to get touch. Our team consists of highly creative, design-orientated construction-minded personnel who will happily work through your needs.


3 Common Fall Protection System Options:

1) Horizontal Lifeline Systems - these are installed on most roof systems, and these horizontal lifeline systems can span up to 12m (40ft) between energy-absorbing anchors, ensuring continuous hands-free roof access for all fall arrest system users.

An incredibly versatile height safety system, these multi-directional cable-based roof safety rescue lines support both fall arrest and fall restraint systems and are engineered by STQ to suit a variety of different roof contours and working practices.

There are also the rigid horizontal lifeline systems. The benefit of the rigid systems is there is no deflection (unlike the safety wire systems), and are specially useful where the fall risk area is close to where the user needs to access.

We insist on all systems we install pass the EN795:2012 test to fully comply with current regulations.

This photo displays the horizontal 3M RoofSafe lifeline system which is effectively colour matched to the roof to reduce the visual impact. With the baseplate clamped to the roof seams no penetrations are made through the roof, avoiding any possibility of roof leaks.

2) Safety Eyebolts - these are used where the user needs to work only within an area of close proximity, and are often a lower-cost option.

3) Mobile Man Anchors - (also known as deadweight anchors) these mobile systems are excellent where a fall protection safety wire system is required, but due to different applications the system will need to be relocated to various areas around the roof. The versatile Roof Weight Angel Anchor.
